I have three monitors of varying resolutions, especially in the height dimension where they sit side by side. My main monitor is 4K (2160h) in the middle and I have two smaller monitors either side: 1200h on one side and 768h on the other.
The problem is the 4K monitor is beautiful and tight, but the others are larger old monitors but they each serve their purpose. The 1900x1200 monitor is physically the same size as the 4K monitor but pixel for pixel the 4K is almost double the height.
This means for half of the 4K screen my mouse cursor "bumps" the edge and I have to move up or down to get into the smaller monitor. It's worse on the other side.
Given the main and second monitors are the same height I would like for the mouse cursor to translate some Y coordinate so that going off the bottom of one monitor equalled the same position on the other monitor and the same on return.
Is it possible to have monitors of two different pixel heights, side-by-side but have their bottoms and tops align on the desktop?
Mathematically, as the mouse moved from 1>2 the Y coordinate would halve so that it "appeared" to be at the correct position, and would again double on the way back.
edit: This is the situation as it appears on my system below. I could make the screens align to the top (making the "break" at the bottom of the screens), or move them to the middle where the mouse would catch every time at both the top and the bottom (most un-ideal).
Reading over the solutions that have been presented recently, I have played extensively with the GUI settings and no amount of what I have available to me allows me to achieve "alignment".
Utilising the scale option affects ALL monitors and does the reverse of what I'd like. Going to 200% (which if applied to a single monitor, I could handle), blows up all screens to 200%. If I could blow up JUST the side monitors, I'd be happy. YES, they'd be grainy and ginormous, but I would have specific things on that screen that suit what's being displayed there.
I'd like to be proven wrong, but I have been searching for a solution for this for years. I do not believe it is possible.
I did just mention in a comment that I have achieved something similar in another product called "synergy". I haven't used this in a number of years, but it's use case is particular to a virtualised KVM network of computers running together. In the synergy system, you could align the exit and entry points of one monitor to the next regardless of height mismatch. I do not know if this is still the case, I have not used the product in over a decade (and surviving buy outs and takeovers), AND it's usage is grossly different to what I use now. THEN I used synergy to remote desktop one computer across a network of 4 and all the screens touched each other. It WAS a sweet solution. However, the main difference is applications were always restricted to their own desktops. You couldn't have an application spanning remote desktops. Hence the mouse movement was a lot simpler.
